Stopped for a late lunch. It wasn't crowded but it was loud. The guacamole and tortillas were excellent. All the food was good but those two items really shines. The salsa is good but a little spicy for some of us. Wouldn't hesitate to come again.

There's nothing special about this location. Typical tex mex. The decor is the best part. Service is friendly and the food is decent, but the fajitas have hardly any seasoning. If UJ would add a bit more flavour to their meals I would think differently.

Ate here with the family. One of the better Tex Mex places in Allen. Had some of the soups and traditional dishes. We would go back.

This was our first visit to Uncle Juilo's Allen location. We've been to the Addison (It's there or nearby as all these city limits run together) location many times. It's a favorite of ours for Mexican cuisine. Both locations good food, great service and affordable. Visited after a quick shopping trip to the Allen Outlets.

I went here for dinner with an old friend. I chose a platter from the menu, and the food arrived quickly. I seemed to have ordered a huge meal, but we enjoyed sharing it. The waitress was attentive. My only reservation is that the room was big and left the place in the early evening with a cool atmosphere. Perhaps... More

I LOVE Uncle Julio's! This is my "go to" and one of my favorite places to eat. The table side guacamole is the BEST! I love the sangria (frozen and on the rocks) and the margaritas are good too. I've tried many things on the menu and have not been disappointed in any of my choices. Most of the time,... More

Stopped in for a late lunch with a friend. We had table side guc and it was awesome. We both had fajitas. He had chicken and I had the combination. We both ate all the meat. It was cooked just right. We both had two beers and they were cold. Be prepared for the bill and it was $74. You... More

I went to an early dinner with my wife. I requested a booth, so I explained that I understood that it may take longer, but I didn't realize how much. After waiting close to 20 minutes (and seeing many other couples get called for their table), I went to the desk and asked how much longer. I was told not... More

We had a decent time. The restaurant is huge--indoor and outdoor seating. Nice ambiance. Service was okay... food was pricey but nothing special. There are lots of other mexican restaurants nearby, better than this.

The food at Uncle Julio's is fairly tame for Mexican food. The service was just okay, even at lunch when we went. The chips and salsa were also just okay. The enchiladas were bland, as were the beans and rice. My family members also thought the food was just okay. About the only thing that was good were the beverages.... More
